We explored our fruits and vegetables this week by painting with them! Lettuce, onions and celery make such beautiful prints! After the paint dried, some students worked on labelling our masterpiece with the specific fruit or vegetable name.
Math measuring fun! In the pictures you see students measuring their height using objects found in the room, measuring length down the hall and measuring distance using ramps and items brought from home. We also explored mass using the balance scales.
Other fun included practicing our sight word up, colouring our favourite fruits and playing memory match using our new cards.
Check out the fun our students get to have in Science! Thanks, Mrs. Teeter!
We practice writing a couple times a week. We keep most of the writing at school because we glue it into their journals which will go home at the end of the year. It’s so fun to look back and see how much they have learned and developed in their Language skills!
Building is a big deal in our class. There are always a couple groups of students building cool structures during our play periods. Here are a couple from this week.
In the pictures below, students are playing “can you guess my shape”.
Math is extra fun when you get to paint shapes!!!
We hope you all had a wonderful holiday. It was so nice to see our students Monday morning! We have fallen back into routine very easily.
In Math this week, we are focusing on shapes. In the pictures below students created their own houses using various shapes. We also had a great lesson where students worked together to make shapes using their bodies. Key shapes we are learning are; square, circle, rectangle and hexagon.
The sun peeked out on Tuesday so we took the opportunity for some extra outside exploration.
In Science, Mrs. Teeter has created some amazing snow buckets for students to enjoy. I will post some pictures of the crystals the students are growing later in the week.
In Language, we will continue to practice our letter and sight word recognition daily. We have also been enjoying doing shared reading together and exploring word families. Please continue to read with your child at home. Also, consider using the Raz Kids program we offer through the school.
This is our last week at school before the Christmas holidays. We have some special activities planned for this week.
Tuesday – Business Fair. The grade 6 students will be partnering with us when the fair opens on Tuesday morning. They will help students spend their money at the fair. Some of the items being sold include; treats, hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, Christmas ornaments, handmade board games and cheese boards. Please feel free to join us as well on Tuesday morning to enjoy this great event. All money raised goes towards helping our grade 8’s pay for their special grade 8 trip. Due to the fair, chicken nuggets will be coming on Wednesday instead.
Wednesday – carol singing in the gym. Chicken nuggets will be coming today instead of yesterday.
Thursday – Empathy assembly at 9:15. Carol singing in the gym. Santa will be visiting from 1:30 – 2:30 today to accept items donated for My Friends House. Please refer to note we sent home last week regarding this.
Friday – PJ day!!! I’m pretty excited about this one. 🙂 Periods 1 and 2 we will watch a Christmas movie being put on by the Leadership team. We will also be enjoying a special treat that we will be making together in class! Just a quick reminder that we are asking for no treats to be sent in to the class for Christmas. We want to keep our classroom a safe place to be for all of our students. Below is a picture of what we will be making together.
Grinch Fruit Kabobs!
It will be a fun packed week!
